2017-01-24 NEW DELHI’S FASCINATING TEMPLES

By |2017-01-25T22:04:25+00:00January 24th, 2017|India|

In New Delhi our taxi driver was a Sikh and one of the nicest guys I ever met. He invited us to join him visiting the Sikh temple “Gurudwara Bangla Sahib”. I loved the atmosphere in the temple and the surrounding area which was very quiet and relaxing. We even got a Sikh meal, which tasted a bit like a honey-Müsli, named Karah Parshad.  🙂

2016-12-17 INDIANS TAKING PHOTOS AT TAJ MAHAL

By |2017-01-10T20:15:20+00:00December 17th, 2016|India|

At my day at Taj Mahal the vast majority of visitors were Indians. It’s pretty well organized that the crowds walk in lanes, put off their shoes and the access to the Taj Mahal-building is step by step. This is one of the really great sights in the world, you can see photographing activity with nearly every visitor. 🙂

2016-11-19 RED FORT IN NEW DELHI WITH WIDE ANGLE LENS

By |2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00November 19th, 2016|India|

I have seen two Red Forts in India, one in Agra and that one on the photo in New Delhi. It’s an impressive complex, I think you walk about 20 minutes beside those big walls. Inside you have a wide area of gardens and dozens of buildings, partially built with the red stones. I have seen thousands of visitors, mostly from India.

2016-10-31 COLORFUL TEMPLES IN INDIA

By |2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00October 31st, 2016|India|

In New Delhi I was visiting temples for 2-3 days, I think I have seen a dozen of them. I had a very pleasant taxi driver from Ashok’s Taxi Tours, which I can fully recommend, who had driven me from temple to temple and had big patience when I was away taking photos 🙂  and exploring the sights, as here the Laxminarayan Temple.

2016-10-23 RED BUILDINGS IN INDIA

By |2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00October 23rd, 2016|India|

Nowhere I haven’t ever seen so many red buildings as in India, like Red Fort in Agra, Red Fort in New Delhi. Even in the backyarod of the Tomb of I’timād-ud-Daulah in Agra you find many “mini” Red Forts like shown here on the photo. Many of these buildings are sights for their own.

2016-08-28 LITTLE INDIAN GIRL IN AGRA

By |2017-01-10T20:15:25+00:00August 28th, 2016|India|

At the Agra Fort suddenly this little Indian girl was running across a meadow. She looked very nice with the red dress so I shot this photo, I think she didn’t recognize it.

2016-08-23 ONE OF THE MOST PHOTOGRAPHED MONUMENTS

By |2017-01-10T20:15:25+00:00August 23rd, 2016|India|

I think even each child knows this building, if not by name then by appearance. It belongs to the top 5 of the most photographed buildings in the world. If you are standing in front of it, it’s not so easy to get a good composition. The whole place is crowded with tourists, self-proclaimed guides, self-proclaimed photographers  🙂  and securities and every one is shooting photos. So welcome to Taj Mahal..

By |2017-01-10T20:15:26+00:00July 29th, 2016|India|

From the pool at the Le Meridien you have a good view to the next near hotel, the Shangri La in New Delhi. It’s a pleasure swimming in this pool and looking around to the different hotels in this area, particularly in the night.

2016-07-08 TRADITION IN INDIA

By |2017-01-10T20:15:27+00:00July 8th, 2016|India|

Tradition is firmly grounded in the minds of the Indians. The women are mostly clothed with colorful and wide dresses, hair is formed in traditional ways and often bedecked with appropriate jewelry. But between the traditions the smartphone has established its status of the most used item.

2016-07-04 THE WALK OF THE INDIANS

By |2017-01-10T20:15:27+00:00July 4th, 2016|India|

This is the path you have to follow to arrive at the Lotus temple in New Delhi. It’s an endless coming and going, before you enter the temple you have to pull off your shoes and entrance is only allowed in small groups. Within the temple there is absolute silence and a meditative atmosphere.
